Brilliant writing and every story is engaging. Every word had me wanting more. This book is imaginative beyond anything I've read. I talk about the first story in the book to people it is that clever.

A bit heavy on the crack smoke, but this was the early 90s. I enjoyed the odd breaks in narrative, and the black, black humor.
